Time to cut your losses and simply restore the web server from the last working backup, and restore the database from the last full backup prior to the issue. It's the weekend so there won't be too much data loss, but imo there's little advantage in troubleshooting what is either a data corruption or malware issue given the content in question (forum posts). Restoring to a previous state will get you uptime faster and cheaper.

Problem with just a restoration is it could be a lurking issue anyway.

So has to atleast be slightly investigated into and see when exactly did usernames/profile pictures get the rub..

 

Its being looked at anyway :)

basically a few rows were lost from the DB for some reason, and everything after a certain time started working again, we are working out how to re-intergrate backups to fix the problem, but with a forum that has over 5 million posts & 100,000 members... it's a delicate task to get right!

 

it should be all fixed within 24-48hrs

But profile pic still in limbo, and I'm much to lazy to try and sort that out from my phone

Thank god i thought it was just me! yeah my picture does not show and apparently all the users are guests, and when i type replies it makes the font small so i have to change it all the time back to size 14.

It's looking better. But avatars are still lost.

^ Yeah I think the main issue was that of the usernames which is now fixed. Avatar no biggie as that can be reapplied by the users themselves.

 

Cheers,

Should change username to JulieSweetHeart or something about as gay..

 

You'd easily be able to low ball guys for cheap prices on practically anything.
